In Gene Florence’s book, Hazel Atlas Glass Identification Guide, there is a section dedicated to the Big Top Peanut Butter glasses. There is a box labeled Gothic, Platinum Banded with the glasses inside. It has long been speculated that the info was incorrect, because the glasses do not fit into the box correctly, and the box states Platinum Banded, and the peanut butter glasses do not have that band.
The photo of the postcard and magazine ad below shows that these glasses are called “Early American”. Now whether Big Top Peanut Butter called them that, or HA told them that is the pattern name, we do not know. Florence’s book was published in 2009, and since then, more and more info is uncovered, and why you will find the same book with edition # 17 etc….
The photo below is the real ” Gothic” Platinum Banded glasses, in original box. They come in tumblers, on the rocks, and other sizes.
